Some satisfied readers about Stefaan's book (Dutch) 'Succesvol verandering implementeren':
Oh no, just another book about change, there we go again from "as is to to be". I confess, I was wrong. This book is a powerful tool. Read it and use it; your company, your employees and yourself will benefit." - M. Van den Steen
'In change, you walk an ... unknown path', so write the authors of this book. And they are right. After all, a change process is not an improvement process (improve what we already do), it is a learning process (find and take different paths). In other words, we let go of our carefully constructed hold on the past. - Prof. Herman Van den Broeck
This book is an easy read and the many practical examples are recognizable and inspiring. (...) They help us to see things in perspective and to take a broader view. Thanks for sharing! - K. Van Belle
